Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. It's a simple theological one. Religious people read on, non-religious people skip this. Scripture quotes Jesus as saying that "where ever two or more are gathered, there am I". He was clearly talking about establishing truth as the Old Testament directed the Jews to do (hence the two or more witnesses). He IS Truth. Therefore he is there with them, establishing himself. BUT Christians often say, "Hey we have two or more among us, Jesus is here." Hmm. So when i was alone and prayed to him too enter my life, I should have had one or two more people with me? Hmm. It's a wee bit ill-thought-out, I'd say.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. It used to be the death of one of my children. When my son, Nate, died, I had to come to grips with that fear, embrace it and realize that it no longer has power over me.
